Ham Member Lookups: 1662

 

Jan 1, 2017 I lost my wife and constant companion of 58 years. To help with the idle time, I have been trying Dstar, Fusion and DMR. This is the most excitement I have seen in ham radio in quite a few years.

I have been a Ham since 1967, first licensed as KG6AQZ on the Island of Guam while on a 2 year assignment with IBM. My first station was a Swan 350 and an inverted "V" on the roof.

While there I was afforded the privilage of membership in the USAF 27th Comm Squadron radio club, operating as KG6ALY on the club station Collins KWM-2A, 30S-1, and 3el beam at 55ft. Many contests, QSOs and Phone Patches helped pass the idle time.

In 1968 we returned to the Seattle area and I changed my call to WA7JJR and 2 meter mobile became the most used mode for several years. Moving to Plano, Tx in 1976 resulted in another call change to WB5UIJ and an upgrade to Advanced class. In 1978 I was transferred to the Atlanta area (Roswell) and changed my call to KD4AO. 10 Meter SSB QRP was popular then convertin CB radios. I continued interest in 2 Meters repeaters and some HF DX. In 1981 another transfer brought me to Boca Raton, Fl. where I helped start the IBM Radio Club with a few others and eventually we got the WB4QNX repeater on 145.29.

I retired from IBM Boca Raton, Fl. in 1992 and moved to Punta Gorda, Fl.. I have not been very active for the last several years except for periods of HF SSB and VHF/UHF operation.

I have been very active in BPOElks Lodge 2606 and am a Past Exalted Ruler, and past Lodge Secretary. I recently changed my call to a vanity, W4PER, and added an Amatuer Radio tag to the car. If you see me around, I am always up for an eyeball QSO.
